At Cornwall Park District School we believe homework should supplement classroom learning and provides a chance for teachers an opportunity to establish positive links with the home. Homework is not compulsory and no child will ever be punished for not completing homework.
The general guideline is NO more than 30 minutes a day on homework assuming the child is “on task” for that time. Homework generally comprises of reading, practising basic facts and learning spelling words.
Homework may also involve revising a known skill, follow-up of the day’s lessons, or a research type activity.
Teachers can also give homework to extend children with an added challenge. If you feel homework set does not follow these guidelines please let us know.
